ikki5 commented on Orders Open For Xbox One in China as Nintendo ...:

@Unca_Lz Yes, I agree that it does not mean sales, however, doing nothing will get you no where at all. The Market business is about taking risks, not taking any risks when you are already starting to struggle is a set up for more failure. Even more so, not putting a product there means no one gets to know you and with a country that holds 1/6th of the worlds population (yes, I know a lot of them are probably in poverty), you must be stupid to not at least get your foot in the door.

ikki5 commented on Orders Open For Xbox One in China as Nintendo ...:

Sigh, Nintendo's management really needs to be let go, needs a massive overhaul and new people need to come in. I really don't understand this here, this is pretty much them saying "We don't want money so we are not going to go there". Like come on. I know Nintendo has tons of money but doing nothing isn't going to make that money grow nor will it allow it to be maintained at a healthy level. It seems that every month there is just bad decision over bad decision and this one is just another bad one. If they don't get in there now, they won't get in there at all. Need an example? Look at the Xbox in Japan. Sony and Nintendo started there, the Japanese people knew them and recognized them and then Microsoft comes in, not well known and boom. Xbox 360 is a flop. Nintendo will be the same by next Gen for China... that is if they decide to even bother. With the people in charge now, they'll be is horrible shape next gen.

ikki5 commented on Talking Point: Nintendo Continues to Evolve It...:

Well, though i think everything Nintendo has don't with the info is good... but it is still lacking. Yeah, they are good at creating hype.... well kind of. It is just they seem to put their efforts into one thing, currently it is Mario Kart. We don't get too much on smash but it is slowly shifting. There are just so many things though that seem to be left behind such as other games and other services. Personally, I found they generated more hype from the directs where as this year... it's lacking and the hype is more directed at one thing instead a more broad spectrum.

And another week that just proves how much more crappy NoA is compared to NoE. No Megaman, no Pokemon, less discounts, more crap, worse club Nintendo selection, and later release dates (most of the time when they are not released on the same day).

@Grumblevolcano
yeah but... with how NoA has been going, you cannot really bet on that any more. Zelda Link to the Past, Mario 3, Pokemon trading card game plus many others either have not arrived yet or were delayed for a very long time. However at the same time, this would be Capcom doing this, not Nintendo so it might be very much more likely.

ikki5 commented on Video: Watch Zelda Lay The Smackdown With The ...:

The wind wake makes no sense for Zelda to use... It is possible that she may never see it in the game if I remember correctly. Also.... she doesn't sound.... right at the start there. I also hope there will be a more difficult setting for this. That little Bokoblin when Zelda was moving that tornado around... it just stood there stepping from side to side right beside her... I don't want the game to be too easy :P

You know it's bad when you can see it all without scrolling and you can see the votes... But don't worry guys, remember, we are apparently better than NoE.

@Zach777
Didn't that happen for 2013 because 2014 was the focus?

@GuitarAnthony

yeah but the fact that the 3DS actually got releases and 5 times the number of discounts makes up for the fact that there is no VC game like the Wii u did.

@ChuJelly The rewards in general are lacking. Both Status and non status rewards are horrible. They are the worst out of all the regions. They probably chose these for the status rewards simply because, everyone who wants them, owns them. They can still make money on the GBA games so why give them away?

Also, the fact that Earthbound is on here tells me that NA won't be getting the earthbound discount that Europe got.

@Starwolf_UK

Wii mode? last time i checked, you could use the Wii shop on the Wii U in Wii mode to use your Nintendo points cards. yeah those systems are dead but you can still get the games on the Wii VC. yeah they would be 50 hz for you guys... so you have me on that one. But if you had read my other posts, you'd see the fact that having the ability to get one of two $30 games is useless to me. I own them both. In fact, I used both of them to help get me to platinum Status so that "great deal" s no longer a great deal anymore for the simple reason, redundancy downloads doesn't get me more or better. it gives me the same so my net gain over all is 0. This is the big problem with this way of handling the rewards over all. The bigger games, i am willing to bet that 75-80% of people that got to platinum, they already have them, so that would leave you with a bunch of $5 eshop games which in turn, a lot of people would already have them such as myself. This reward system for this year pretty much makes it so you can get that game you cared less about or possibly never cared about at all. Look at the replies in this thread. it is so easy to tell who is from NA and who is not. The people from the EU, just reply saying how much of horrible people we are because we wanted something else other than something the majority of us already own. The NA people are upset with a few ok with it because their don't have one of the larger titles so this actually benefits them while the majority either get nothing, or something they never cared for because they had no interest in it to begin with.

I would be greatly disappointed if this never came to the west for the simple reason that they released the first one. The first one wasn't the complete story and to leave someone just hanging would be a complete douche thing to do.

@Starwolf_UK @Jazzer94

just so you know, Over priced is better than nothing at all which is essentially what the NOA Club Nintendo has ((even though the coins/stars are extra so over priced technically should exist however when there is no point to even having them because nothing is available to you that matters, that is where the problem should be). The best thing we have is a poster set and maybe those pouches. Other than that. it's a joke, NOA has the worst Club Nintendo selection out of the regions that have access to club Nintendo. At least you guys have stuff that is worth spending points on and have the entire downloadable library available to you on the Wii and DSi and not a bunch of free games you don't want or you would already own through getting the platinum.

ikki5 commented on Nintendo Goes Download-Only With The 2014 Club...:

@Jazzer94 Those sound tracks was better than all these combined, plus the key chains, and the Wii Points cards.... these are worth far more than what these platinum rewards especially when you already own pretty much everything and those things plus the game and watch you mention. There is tons of great stuff on the EU club Nintendo which is FAR better than having a club Nintendo that is cheaper but nothing on it anyway. Face it. EU Club Nintendo > NOA Club Nintendo.

@FernandoMachado
Don't expect a lot from Game and Wario. I got about 10 hours out of that game. Very little content. The best minigame on there is the one when you are trying to play the video game in bed without your mom finding out.

ikki5 commented on Nintendo Goes Download-Only With The 2014 Club...:

wow.... I have almost ALL of those already.... Like what the hell? What are they thinking. If people got to platnium status then they spent $600 on stuff so would they expect a lot of platnium status people to already have most of these?

ikki5 commented on Sony: PS4 Is "Welcoming Back" Wii Owners Who S...:

It always baffles my mind with people on why they would buy remasters of games that are only a year old, Unless they never played the original, it is just a waste. I will never buy a remaster of a game unless it is at least 5 years or older.

Also, with them claiming that there is opportunity in remastering... yeah their is but I doubt it is for what they say. They know those games are going to sell and you can remaster a game much faster, easier and cheaper than making a new game and I am pretty sure that's all they care about. If I was a PS4 owner, i would be a little worried about that statement because it sounds like they are going to get a flood of old games that have been "remastered"... but what am I saying? Most of them will blindly buy them anyway because they are the "best" version.

And the welcome back.... ol what? From what? Most people owned either a PS3 and a Wii or a Xbox 360 and a Wii. if was not very often that people owned a single console. if they are saying this because there are 40% of people moved to PS4... I am assuming they say this from the amount of PS+ accounts but if I remember correctly, you did not need to have a PS+ account on the PS3. Sony won't tell us how many PS+ accounts there are s it is hard to judge this. With 80 mil PS3's, How many had the PS+ account? We'll never know because Sony won't release that so I cannot believe them that everyone is buying a PS4 and "upgrading" to a PS4.

Let's do a little math here anyway. If there are 40% more PS+ people, with 8.8 million PS4s, that would mean that 3,520,000 people never had a PS+ account...That would make 4.4% of the PS3 user base if all of them were from the PS3. Now out of the 80 million PS3s... are they going to tell me that all of those 40% all came from different systems? or would they be more likely to come out of the PS3 user base because 4% is not that much. I am wiling to bet that 38%-39% came from the PS3 user base with those numbers.

@rjejr There are 6 characters that use swords now as a main weapon... The Fire emblem characters and the Links. 7 if you include the sword fighter Mii but of course, there are 3 variations of him. out of the 36 total characters. How is that to many?

Chrom isn't playable..., Check the official site, you will only see 3 new characters. Those three are Robin, Capt. Falcon and Lucina.

It's also good to know my girlfriend is in the game too :D (Her name is also Robin :P)

ikki5 commented on Nintendo Download: 17th July (Europe):

@XyVoX curious, are your taxes included in those prices? Because if i remember correctly, they are included, at the same time, Taxes are also higher which would also cause these prices to be higher. Another thing, It is also because your market allows for it. People will buy it so people will sell it unlike what the prices are here. People here in NA, yeah, I'll say it, most are selfish, greedy and think anything and everything should be free or very cheap which leads to a market that would not be able to sell stuff at a huge price or it won't sell at all. That is something the UK doesn't seem to have and your prices reflect on it. One more thing, your minimum wage is quite a bit higher than Most states and provinces in Canada which is usually based on the cost of living. So higher minimum wage usually means higher prices.

ikki5 commented on Poll: Which Is The Best Legend Of Zelda Game?:

Link to the past for me. I love that game, Still play my SNES cartridge but I knew before even voting it would be OOT simply because it is a overrated due to it being the first 3D one... just like a lot of games from that times.

ikki5 commented on New Fighter for Super Smash Bros. to be Reveal...:

Don't care, I want some real news for Smash bros like.... something that makes the Wii U version stand out other than it's visuals. So far I am not looking at buying it any more on Wii U because the 3DS version IS the Wii U version with extras.

ikki5 commented on Wii U Version Of Project CARS Drops To The Bac...:

And there we go, 90% of the hype for the Wii U version is now gone. Sales will be 50-60% (or more) less than what they would be and by this time next year, they'll be say how disappoint they are with the Wii U sales and that they will be removed most of their support. But then again, it makes sense, what would a Wii U game be without a delay?
